Like so many successful breweries, Munich’s Crew Republic grew out of an amateur operation based in a small apartment. Their first beer to hit the market, Foundation 11, is an American Pale Ale-style, brewed with Hercules, Nelson Sauvin, Chinook, Citra, and Cascade hops for a rich, bright hops profile.
Pouring caramel colour capped by a fine off-white head, Foundation 11’s nose is a mix of roasty, malty, caramel scents, and attractive citrus and mango notes.
On the tongue, you’ll find soft bitter tones, with a persistent fruitiness that, coupled with malts, caramel, hops, pine, floral, and herbal notes, offers a bitter, balanced finish.
